Beschreibung

This novel is about a young man, Jule, who grew up in rural Alabama in the 1930s. He experienced a peaceful farm life filled with hard work in the hot sun followed by socializing by moonlight in the cooling hours of the night. His mother, Ollie Miss, raised him "to be somebody," as she said, and he always knew that he would follow her advice. As he grew, he developed a close friendship with the white storekeeper's son, Rollo, and an earthly love for Berta Mae, a neighbor girl. This quiet life changed abruptly for the young Negro boy when he fled Alabama and arrived in Harlem, there to gain a foothold in that world center of black social and economic power. Although a novel, "Jule "is strongly autobiographical and gives insight into a vanished Harlem, a glittering community that produced a rich outpouring of distinctively American literary works. J. Lee Greene's introduction places the novel in the context of the time and links this work with Henderson's earlier novel - Ollie Miss, also available from the University of Alabama Press - establishing its rightful place in Afro-American literature.
